“Art on the Avenue”

Rather than watch another neighborhood transformed from deserted urban blight to cheese-ball urban fright, the Avenue Community Development Corporation decided to take action and provide affordable housing for near-downtown residents, including artists. The group’s annual fund-raiser, “Art on the Avenue” at Winter Street Studios, is a huge silent auction featuring works by more than 200 artists. Attend and you’ll be helping to provide affordable housing and walking away with great art. Seriously, when has your partying been more useful? Today’s preview party is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday’s auction and party is 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. 2101 Winter Street. For information, call 713-864-8099 or visit www.avenuecdc.org. $20 to $50.
Thu., Nov. 8, 6-9 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 10, 3 p.m., 2007
